Technip Energies has announced the successful test of its Large Scale Vortex Burner (LSV®) for 100% firing of hydrogen.
The LSV burner was developed by Air Products and designed and applied by Technip Energies’ in various fired heater usages. The successful test demonstrates the potential use of LSV in avoiding direct CO2 emissions by substituting 100% hydrogen for methane or other fuel gases.
The burner is a cost-effective, low-NOX combustion solution. This technology has been applied successfully over the past 15 years in cracking furnace and hydrogen reformer installations, in both new or retrofitted projects. The burner can now be applied to different process heating applications and combustion air supply modes and is also suitable for a wide range of fuel gas compositions and firing configurations.
Stan Knez, Chief Technology Officer, Technip Energies, said: "We are very excited with the outcome of the LSV burner technology testing on 100% hydrogen firing. This is another example of how we can advance the energy transition by testing new ways to reduce CO2 emissions, improve energy efficiency and set the stage for wide-application across many industries to replace hydrocarbon-based feedstock with clean-burning hydrogen."
